The Jamestown Sun's Dave Olson reported on two men, Keith A. Strand and Chad Swanson, who are charged with stealing $8,700 worth of grain from Triple S Farms in Wheatland, ND. Strand was witnessed loading a truck with soybeans from the storage facility, which he and Swanson own a stake in, and when confronted by authorities claimed Triple S Farms was experiencing money issues and that he and Swanson decided to sell the grain that they maintain they own.
